Now you know I stand by my anti-eastern-food convictions.

No, I meant the implication that there's no rice in Indian food.

If I were to do another pair of Asian, who should I match Vietnamese up with?  Three come to mind: Korean, Japanese, and Thai.

Based on what I know, Indian.  I haven't even gotten to try any of the really spicy stuff yet, either.

Indian is some of my least favorite food even though I love spicy stuff. Chinese is good unless it's too authentic. Take-out Chinese is good though.

Having had the good (mis)fortune to spend some time in India, I can say pretty much never want to eat Indian food again.  On the other hand, I've never spent any time in China.  There was a nice Chinese restaurant in the hotel I stayed at in Hyderabad.  The Chinese food there tasted pretty much like...Indian food...and had the same effect on the ol' GI tract.
Can you tell me where we're headin'?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon.

I understand Theo, I've been in almost all  South America and the two only countries in which I found people eat rice with lets say 70% of their food are Perú and Ecuador.

As a fact the main dish of Chinese Peruviab creole cuisine is Arroz Chaufa (wrongly named Peruvian Fried Rice)



Normally you make it with chicken and shrimps, but you can add the meat and saussages you wish, it always tastes good.

Mixed with 


Taypa: Has every meat (Fish, shrimps, chicken and pork) 

And a sweet dish, lake


Kam Lu Wantan (Wantons with everything)

Make a meal for 4

love both

I'm convinced I've never really had real Chinese cuisine though, and I live among a huge Asian population in Northern Cal; plenty of restaurants, few of them any good.   When I want Chinese, I forge-up the old wok, chop up some meat and veggies, make sure I have plenty of hot chilis, peanut oil and rice wine .. it's always better than takeout

My wife used to work with some Chinese immigrants when we lived in DC - one time, they brought in some homemade fried rice.  I didn't have the pleasure of sampling it, but my wife said it was orders of magnitude better than anything she's ever had at a restaurant.

I probably have never had "real" Chinese food as well - I've been to some upscale places that will serve better than you'll get at your local hole-in-the-wall, but it's still pretty much the same Chinese-American fare, "inauthentic" to some degree.

Of course, the same could be true of Indian food I've had (restaurants only).

We actually do have Chinese restaurants that serve authentic.  We make it at home, too.  Same with Indian. 

I'm surprised that Indian is still staying slightly ahead of Chinese.   It was probably about 15 years after my first Chinese before I tried Indian.  Didn't really like it the first time  Second time was the charm.

The rice is one of my favorite parts of Indian food.
